Since 1995 I've helped people and businesses to deal with professional audio systems, DMX controlled lighting effects and video signal distribution networks in nightclubs, bars, shopping centers, offices and private residences. I've designed and installed hundreds of such systems, set them up, taught clients how to use them, troubleshoot and gave assistance in upgrading. Nowadays I still provide consultations on sound reinforcement and help people to choose the right equipment.
Audio mixing & mastering
I can mix your electronic dance music multi-track recording into a stereo file. I mix music in styles I like and often listen to: Techno, House (Progressive, Organic, Minimal), Trance, Disco, Breakbeat, Drum'n'Bass, Hip-Hop, EDM. Music can be with or without vocals. I specialize on mixing densely arranged music with lots of competing parts sounding at the same time. It's challenging to make the result sound punchy, loud and powerful, but I can do it. I use volume, FX and other parameters automation as well as some complex mixing techniques to achieve a good sound that translates to various sound systems very well.
Before I start mixing, apart from the 'multi-track' with all the individual tracks (in .wav of .aiff format), I need some examples of the sound, I want to hear:
- your own rough mix;
- other commercially released music of the same style that you like the sound of.
The quality of the sound of your mixed dance track will be high enough that you won't hesitate to send it to the record labels, to distribute it to streaming services or take it with you to the club on a 'thumb drive' and include it in your DJ mixes. If you like the sound of my own works and remixes I can make your music sound just as good.
I can make a remix of your music composition in case it really resonates with me. Let me listen to your original track and we can discuss all the matters. For instance here is a remix I've made for one of the pioneers of Southern Russian club industry, my friend DJ Ostap, in the style of the music that was playing during the late '90s and early 2000s at the iconic QUADRO club:
DJ Mix / DJ podcast sound enhancement
Have you recorded a great DJ mix, but the sound isn't perfect? I can make it as high quality, pleasant for the ear or as aggressive, as you wish:
- compensate for the difference in the sound of individual tracks (I'll write automation of volume, EQ, panning);
- remove volume jumps on transitions;
- equalize tonal balance (bring bass / treble back to normal);
- I will raise the volume so that the "dynamics" is not lost.
- if the highest frequencies are "dead" and can't be pulled out by EQ - I can "synthesize" them artificially, in different ways, up to very sophisticated ones.
